The Birthplace of the Open Championship Prestwick Golf Club, the Birthplace of the Open Championship, welcomes all golfers from around the world to come and enjoy our testing historic Links. Situated on a stretch of golfing terrain unrivalled in the world, Prestwick is less than a couple of hours travel from all the other Open Championship courses in Scotland and is a must play for any discerning lover of the game. The Open Championship has been staged at Prestwick on 24 occasions. Contested over the unique links layout, each running of golf’s oldest Major added to the mystique of the event. Rich in character, the famous clubhouse is as much part of the Prestwick experience as the celebrated course over which the Open Championship was first played. Here prized golfing memorabilia adorn aged wood-panelled walls – for lovers of the game, this is where golf’s myths and legends come to life. /PrestwickGC @PrestwickGC www.prestwickgc.co.uk
